Since I am a learning support teacher/special educator, I have been exploring iPads and iPhone apps as a means of assistive technology for students with disabilities. I have been searching for apps with specific goals in mind such as reading comprehension and fluency, written expression, mathematics, transition, etc. What apps would you use with your students?See More

I just began research for an article, which will tie together technology use, 21st century global classrooms and interdisciplinary studies. While media are endless, ways in which teachers can use them often are not. My aim is to shed some light on the how global projects can be used across content areas to engage students in authentic and meaningful learning experiences.

Sasha,

  I enjoyed  the video you posted about Multicultural Education.  It falls in line with our the class we are taking concurrently with Dr. Fennimore.  At CCAC, I am constantly writing about diversity of students and the issues related to it.  We also have more and more international students, which increases our diversity as a community college.

Skyward

Greetings,I am an Assistant Principal in a district that will use Skyward for the first time this year for scheduling to grading. I would like to hear from others that are using Skyward for scheduling. How has using it reduced the difficulty in building a master schedule and creating student schedules? I currently work at a high school grades 9-12 with 1600 students. The scheduling task shifted to me due to a resignation and I would like insight since only the departing administrator attended…See More
